PSG.LGD hailed Champions of WePlay Animajor
Chinese esports organization PSG.LGD was hailed the Champion of the WePlay Animajor after sweeping Evil Geniuses in the Grand Final. The win nets them $200,000 USD and 500 DPC points.
KuKu-led T1 lost to the experienced North American squad in a close series 2-1 and were denied the rights for their first championship berth.
Fellow kababayan Abed “Abed” Yusop, showed his prowess on using Puck as he dominated games 1 and 3 to close out the series and head to the Finals against PSG.LGD.
Even though EG dominated the Lower Bracket on their journey towards the Championship, fatigue was evident as they were crushed by PSG.LGD 3-0 in the Finals. Game 1 started badly for EG as Wang “Ame” Chunyu showed the dominance of his position 1 Axe to draw first blood in the best-of-five series in the Animajor Finals.
Regardless of the crawling pressure on EG’s sleeves, the North American squad still kept their faith on the position 1 Nature’s Prophet used by Artour “Arteezy” Babaev. The teamfight capabilities of PSG.LGD’s Death Prophet and Brewmaster picks, however, proved to be hard too contain as Game 2 was claimed again by the Chinese squad.
"But what did it cost?"
